What's H2Overhaul?

Did you know that your lawn is the biggest water consumer at your house? The best way you can save is to transform some of that grass into a water-wise landscape.

Thornton Water and the Center for Resource Conservation are working together to help water customers learn the dirt on converting at least 200 square feet of their lawns. The first 50 approved Thornton Water customers will receive an H2Overhaul Toolkit including free water-wise plants and a starter kit to convert a spray irrigation zone into a drip zone.

How To Participate

Any water customer can collect hints and tips from Thornton Water to tackle their own H2Overhaul project. To receive the 2017 H2Overhaul Toolkit, the program requirements are listed below. If the workshop is full or you’ve missed the date, email water@ThorntonWater.com to collect ideas and information on how-to transform your yard.
